so my friend has grown closer to God and i am SOOO happy for her ;D
But i realized that she is always making her Facebook statues about God and how he's so amazing but I feel that her EXCESSIVE statues about God is getting out of control. Now i am not jealous from her, but i feel that she should be humble and keep her relationship of her and God to herself.
I am not even sure if i am right or if i am looking at this the wrong way
You have to REALLY dig deep and ask yourself why this is bothering you.
But in my opinion I see nothing wrong with this, if she is being sincere.
If I tried the most delicious piece of chocolate in the world and kept it to myself, while knowing that you would love this chocolate if you tried it, you might think I am selfish or just outright weird.
How much more eager should we be to share how beautiful a relationship with the Lord tastes like?!!
I used to have a facebook and would get annoyed at people who always posted bible quotes - it kind of became popular. But when I examined myself, I found that the real reason I was annoyed is because I thought these people were fake and just putting up bible quotes that sounded nice and that they probably don't even read the bible. In other words, I was judging them.
Now I am not saying that is what you are doing. But search and you will find the reason you are annoyed. Talk to your father of confession about it.
Christ is risen from the Dead!
But where would i be without Jesus and more stuff like that. Its been going on for maybe a month, I just feel that she should be humble or more private about her relationship. Maybe she wants people to talk about how religious she became or maybe i wish i was religious as her i dont know yet lol
Be happy for her and do likewise. Maybe not on facebook, but with every person you meet. They should feel God's presence in your life. We should not be so secretive about our relationship with the Lord. That said, we should be wise in the things we share. We have to know when we are sharing something to glorify God and when we are sharing something to glorify ourselves.
Like I said, talk to your father of confession. He knows you best and probably knows your friend and will give you the best advice.
Please help me about information,i read about the Armenian church in Moscow and knew about arcibishop TIRAN Curegan he was in Moscow untill 2001 i tried to call, to ask,but couldn't recieve answer.Maybe someone know about his destiny and his follows in Moscow?
thanks too much.
And I'm not trying to be condescending either. Messages about Christ can be a good thing on Facebook. Bad English cannot.
I don't believe it's wrong..could be just 'too much' but when someone has been away from god and then finally gets close to him, they get the urge to shout it from the mountain tops..
may be it's god's way of getting some other person close to god by sending your friend as a messenger.
And if your friend is just showing off..well, god will deal with that..so don't get too concerned :)
Tell her of your concerns in a way she doesn't feel defencive. Ask her to quote from the bible maybe. I love geomikes reply for smirser and I wish it was like facebook where I could push the like word.
